Latest Lab-on-a-chip Stories
“BioMEMS” is the new market research report added to ReportsnReports.com store.
Miniaturized laboratory-on-chip systems promise rapid, sensitive, and multiplexed detection of biological samples for medical diagnostics, drug discovery, and high-throughput screening.
Samuel K. Sia, associate professor of biomedical engineering at Columbia Engineering, has taken his innovative lab-on-a-chip and developed a way to not only check a patient's HIV status anywhere in the world with just a finger prick, but also synchronize the results automatically and instantaneously with central health-care records—10 times faster, the researchers say, than the benchtop ELISA, a broadly used diagnostic technique.
ALine is a finalist for the prestigious Patrick Soon Shiong Innovation Award.
Brigham Young professor Adam Woolley and his students have developed a new "lab on a chip" (LOAC) which will help with diagnosing diseases long before current detection methods could.
Have you ever had a solution that needed a problem? No, I'm not saying that backwards. That's the strange predicament that Peter Willis and his team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory found themselves in recently.
A technique that uses acoustic waves to sort cells on a chip may create miniature medical analytic devices that could make Star Trek's tricorder seem a bit bulky in comparison, according to a team of researchers.
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have gotten us one step closer to understanding and overcoming one of the least-understood mechanisms of HIV infection—by devising a method to precisely track the life cycle of individual cells infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.
Lab on a chip (LOC) devices—microchip-size systems that can prepare and analyze tiny fluid samples with volumes ranging from a few microliters (millionth of a liter) to sub-nanoliters (less than a billionth of a liter)—are envisioned to one day revolutionize how laboratory tasks such as diagnosing diseases and investigating forensic evidence are performed.
Lab on a Chip is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published bi-weekly (24 issues per year) by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). It was established in 2001 and hosts RSC’s other publications: Highlights in Chemical Technology and Highlights in Chemical Biology. The editor-in-chief is Harp Minhas. Lab on a Chip publishes original primary research and review articles on any aspect of miniaturization at the micro and nano scale. It covers a variety of disciplines including chemistry,...
